Historic Subiaco sites to go under the hammer

  • Subi Centro

THE Australian Fine China (AFC) site in Subiaco opened to the public today with five single residential lots in the highly sought after precinct set to go to auction next month. Planning Minister John Day said the 4.4 hectare site on Hay Street sits at the top of the popular Subiaco Common and is a contemporary extension to the existing Subi Centro community.

“Subdivision, service infrastructure and road works have been completed on site and a series of striking public art pieces can now be unveiled to the public,” he said.

“This site will deliver a mix of new commercial and residential opportunities and is one of the final land releases for people wanting to build a home in the award-winning Subi Centro development. The five lots for auction range in size from 212sqm – 236sqm and have provision for three storey development or a maximum building height of 11.5m, with houses covering up to 85 per cent of the blocks.”

The Minister said the Australian Fine China precinct pays respect to the former fine china factory that occupied this site for more than 80 years and reflects the high quality public open spaces and streetscapes of Subiaco.

“In addition, it incorporates a number of sustainability initiatives such as a centralised geothermal system and grey water and stormwater recycling. Subiaco is one of the most highly sought after localities in Perth boasting outstanding recreational, cultural, educational, transport and civic facilities and in close proximity to the CBD and Perth’s beaches.”

When complete, AFC is expected to provide up to 300 new homes and up to 37,500 square metres of commercial space for over 2,000 new workers.
